Reviews - What do customers think about Left Behind: An Experience in Sound and Drama: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days?
We're hooked on the Series Jul 23, 2006
The drama is well done from the very beginning of the first episode. It's easy to imagine what the characters are going through as they deal with the terror of being "left behind." We like to listen to these while traveling in the car. They make a long driving trip go really fast - we get about 350 miles from a 12-episode set.
Drama much better than the movie May 1, 2003
I enjoyed this much more than the movie. The Drama and action is really good. The sound effects and the quality of the actors is Great. I will be buying the rest of the series as soon as I can. GREAT STUFF!
Chilling.. Dec 9, 2002
I bought the whole series in audio CD from this site.com. The sound is awesome - like being at the movie theater without being able to see the picture. The narration has created such vivid pictures for me, though, that I haven't had to see it with my own eyes. The reality of the end times has never been so chillingly illustrated for me as it has been in these audio CD's. I'm up to "Soul Harvest" now and as I move along, I'm finding it harder and harder to put these CD's away. It is like listening to a story on radio, which I love doing.
THERE IS NONE BETTER!! Feb 19, 2002
I have listened to all of the audio cassettes to date & seen the Left Behind video. I have just got to say that the 'Experience in Sound & Drama' Audio books are far more riveting & exciting than the former 2 version's. I only wished that I had purchased the Drama versions first. No one can go wrong listening to these 'Experiencing Sound & Drama' Audio Books.
Made me appreciate the movie Jan 3, 2002
OVERALL: The Left Behind book is presented in these CDs as an audio drama (like old time radio shows). Different actors read the parts. 3 stars for fulfilling my desire to hear the story in an engaging manner, but the direction of the characters was poor and the sound was inconsistent.
PROS: It's a great story. Reminded me of what happened earlier on in the series (I had already read the books); passed the time on my 7 hour drive to see my sister. (This set must have taken 5 hours.)
CONS: The characters are portrayed like real jerks at first (vs. the book & movie in which they seemed more "everyday"). The "acting" is sometimes very poor (some of Steve Plank's lines were terrible). The music adds to the interest but it is way too loud compared to the volume of the voices. It's hard to follow sometimes, even having read the books.
RECOMMENDATION: Read the books if you can first - you can go at your own pace and the acting/directing in your head is always better than what can came across on the CDs.
